A little about Hayley.......I was born and raised in Liverpool, England and moved to Palmer, Alaska in 2000. I have lived in the Mat Su Valley since.
I have always loved working with children, I am currently working towards my Bachelor degree in Special Education. Prior to joining the Valley CASA team, I have spent the past six years working as a case worker for the Division of Public Assistance, serving families statewide. I have enjoyed working with families and helping provide them with resources for success.
I have always felt pulled towards working with those who need a little extra help. Even when I have questioned why, the answer is always the same: It takes one person to make a difference in another person’s life. I have always lived by that motto and try to be that good difference where I can be.  
When I am not working, I enjoys fishing, hiking and spending time with my husband and children.

You've just inquired about the most rewarding and empowering volunteer opportunity that exists to make a difference in a child's life.

What does having a CASA volunteer mean to a foster child? Imagine what it would be like to lose your parents, not because of something you did, but because they can't - or won't - take care of you. Now, into your life come dozens of strangers: police, foster parents, social workers, judges, lawyers, and more. Having a CASA volunteer means having by your side a trained and committed adult who has been appointed by a judge to watch over and advocate for your best interests. That CASA volunteer will make sure you don't get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system or languish in an inappropriate group or foster home. They will be there for you until your case is closed. It can make the difference between homelessness and a safe home, between dropping out and completing school, between unemployment and success, between jail and becoming a productive member of society.

CASAs are the only volunteers that are appointed by a judge and empowered to stand up for an abused or neglected child in court. We invite you to learn more about becoming a CASA volunteer in your community. We hope you decide to join our family of volunteers - everyday people who are committed to improving children's lives.
